If this pub with rooms were to sit an eco-friendly exam it’d pass with flying colours. Set in the quaint town of Totnes, The Bull Inn takes a radical approach to running a boozer, favouring a low-key ethical approach to every element of its operations, from the veg-forward menu offering seasonal, organic produce to the locally-made mattresses plumped with organic Dartmoor wool. The restaurant is at the heart of this operation, and forward-thinking chefs make magic with fish from Cornwall, sustainably sourced wild venison or just some glorious legumes from local farmers. Complete your jolly with a ramble down the high street packed with off-beat boutiques and wholesome cafes, before setting your sights on the sandy south Devon beaches, just a 30-minute drive away.
